Suffolk County Public Libraries' Summer Reading Contest Winner

East Islip Library presents a Sony e-Reader to a winner of the summer reading contest.

Twenty Suffolk County Public Libraries have awarded Sony e-Readers to the winners of the recent summer reading contest.  Young students were given this opportunity by joining their local summer reading clubs.  The top two readers entering grades 3-5 and 6-8 from participating libraries were entered into a raffle to win one of 20 Sony e-Readers.  Winning entries were chosen and a ceremony for each winner was held at their local library.   

“The contest provided students with an extra incentive to join the summer reading club,” said East Islip Library’s Young Adult Services Librarian Kassia Worst.  “It was my pleasure to present the award to our library’s winner. She is a great kid who uses the library often and deserves this honor”

The Sony e-Reader reads like a real book and is the only truly wireless device for borrowing eBooks. To learn more about e-Readers drop by your local library and speak to a librarian.
